Pakistan market bomb 'kills 15'


At least 15 people have been killed and more than 20 wounded in a car bomb attack on a market in north-west Pakistan, local security officials say.

Some reports said a suicide attacker detonated the bomb in the town of Darra Adam Khel near the Khyber tribal area.

It was apparently aimed at a pro-government militia set up to fight the Taliban, local security officials said.

Some of the wounded were being taken to hospitals in other towns, because local facilities could not cope.

This footage shows the scene outside Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar and also the scene of the attack.
